Thread: Should we update the rule to the Start timing?

Started by: CzaRCzaR

It has been long enough now and those who have stated their thoughts have spoken. We have two in favor of yes and one in favor of leaving it as is. In the next week I will add a revision to the rule, stating the digits of the timer offset, and will adjust the timing of the currently submitted runs to reflect this change.

Thread: Console/Emulation Timing

Started by: CzaRCzaR

We have a new WR run that has been submitted for Glitchless by Paul.

I feel this now is again the time to bring up the aspect of dividing the leaderboard categories based upon the console/emulation used. We know that SGB and SGB2 will run slightly faster framerates than GBC, GBA, or other types of console/emulation.

While not a concern in the past, now, as we have more activity and active runners than ever before, it is coming back up for debate. Over the course of an hour and a half, and from what I have seen in testing, two runners can have the exact same things happen during the run, however, on SGB or SGB2, the estimated time difference is a whopping 2+ minutes.

This will most likely be put to a vote should the mods/runners here feel it required. Until then, the matter remains up for debate.

Should we add a category for completing the Scenarios? If so, should they be individual, all scenarios, or both?

Darkwing Duck has a time delay on his start for running this game. It is generally more accepted among speedrunners to do so. By doing so however, we alter the currently submitted runs.

I say we put it to a vote. We will re-examine this after 2 weeks time, plenty of time for anyone interested and active to vote.

Thread: Leaderboard Has Been Overhauled

Started by: CzaRCzaR

Update, the issue seems to be resolved, we should now see categories and consoles available for speedrun submissions.

EDIT: I have updated the runs to the best of my ability, the run by Shieldzies had a video link that has expired and was removed. If you are reading this, please resubmit Shieldzies and anyone else that had a run submitted.

Thread: Leaderboard Has Been Overhauled

Started by: CzaRCzaR

Sadly, there was no way to do this, without losing the runs that were submitted. I ask everyone who submitted a run to please do so again. I am currently going through the records we had and will update the leaderboard to the best of my ability.

Speedrun.com has not been cooperative, it has taken nearly an hour just to get to this point, as I am often dealing with the message of the site being overloaded, and the updates I try to get done are lost, leaving me to start over from scratch. This is another reason I have waited until this point to overhaul the leaderboard, as I expected there would be issues. I moderate several leaderboards, and as they become more active, they are updated. However, for some reason the interface has changed on the website, and I have the exact same layouts in the mod settings for the popular games, such as Rock N Roll racing, with detailed categories and consoles. It is not working for this leaderboard however. I have contacted SR support to attempt to continue resolving the issue.

I ask for understanding and patience until we have all the runs back up on the leaderboard, I am working to the best of my ability to meet everyone's requests here, alone.

Thread: Fix this leaderboard

Started by: xenkaroshixenkaroshi

As the game leaderboard gets more runs, I simply ask for patience as things develop and updates will come. It is the same for every game leaderboard. We currently have a total of 7 runners and the game is not overly active at this time.

I remain open to any and all feedback everyone has, as always, when the time comes, there will be an overhaul of the leaderboard, tailored to the interests of those which have spoken up here. This was the intent from day one, when I founded the leaderboard here. It is nice to to see it has grown to this point!

Not sure why it should be surprising the colecovision got a category, a runner came to the forum, just as you are now, asking for it to be added. That is how things work after all.

Thread: Recent submission

Started by: CzaRCzaR

Recently, SR.com user hebereke submitted some information regarding differences between Mechwarrior USA and Battletech. A submission with this information was offered, however, there was no speedrun video attached, however this was submitted recently to our leaderboard, I will attempt to confirm in the future. @ hebereke, if you see this post, perhaps you can elaborate further?

From what I understand, you cite the differences in the timing of the games yes, between US and PAL releases of the game for official speedrunning? If this is the case, then if we get enough runners for that category, it can certainly be added.

It was used for practice runs but seeing as there are no other active runners it can be removed.

As long as it is clear that it is separate from 100%, I am all for it. The question becomes, the rules, do we allow dragon warp, poison glitch, manips, etc in the run?

Toorima has expressed interest in joining the mod team here.

Personally I am all for it. The amount of runners continues to gradually increase, he has put in a lot of time and knows the game extremely well. Including routing for just about every category. He is also an honest runner and a long time friend.

With the approval of Catklaw and Deln, I will proceed in making him a mod.

Ive been playing a lot of Kratus boss hacks, super fun. Got runs of each character. I think it become somewhat popular and it has a very good feel mechanically.

Here is my PB for Abadede on Mania, the enemies are much faster and craftier, however so are 3 of the 4 playable boss characters. Zamza is just awful.

Thread: Beat G. CEARA on 7-Speed

Started by: Bill_DupondBill_Dupond

Wow 10 hours? So Ceara will relentlessly chase after Madonna team for the entire 2nd season? I can see how this could get very difficult in some of the more challenging tracks like Canada or Monaco. If I understand, you will have to use the strategy mentioned above and never exceed 448 km, on every race for season 2?

Even if it may not be possible to do the aforementioned, you might be able to prolong the demotion to team Dardan and save time by having an extra course with the Madonna team.

This changes the route for World Championship for sure. I may start running this again, if for the sheer glory of beating G Ceara after years of his cheating! I wonder if the Brazil Course is different however?
